Free book is suddenly $9.99
Now and then I search the free books. Seldom do I keep one after finishing the sample, but a couple I did find good.
The other day (using the "-domain" to remove the old classics) I found one titled "The Whiskey Rebels: A Novel" by David Liss which sounded good. I got the sample, and about half way through that, realized I wanted the whole book.
I did a search of it to be sure, and it still was free, so downloaded the full book to the Kindle. Then, I got the email from Amazon stating the cost was $9.99!
I called Amazon, and they checked and found it was that price, even though I explained what I had done before getting it to be sure it was still free. They were kind enough to give me a credit, which is typical of their good customer relations.
Just now I went to check the free books again. It was still there among all the other free books before and after it, but it had the $9.99 price.
So, what do they do, list them as free until somebody gets one, and then immediately chage it to $9.99?
The whole thing is a bit weird, but can't complain as still got it at no cost with the credit, but something is goofy.
